Thisin' That

This a little application to help me store, format, and submit Twitter share URLS. I used this project to practice implementing the MVC design pattern in vanilla JavaScript.

What it does is collect information about something I want to share:

  • creator - the person, usually an artist, responsible for the
  • work - the name the work is known by
  • url - a location where the work can be experienced
  • "this" statement - a statement starting with "this" that somehow describes the work or my perception of the work

This data is then used to construct a URL which can be used to open and populate a Twitter compose window.

Here's an example URL:,TSMMH&url=

This URL opens a Twitter compose window with the following info populated:

Chica Libre - Popcorn Andino #ThisSongMakesMeHungry #TSMMH

^ What's strange is that a space gets prepended to the URL. It also doesn't seem possible to reorder the url and hashtags. Ideally the hashtags would be on their own line.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
